, Tyson Fury called out by Oleksandr Usyk if Anthony Joshua steps aside for undisputed world heavyweight fight to go ahead

OLEKSANDR USYK is ready to challenge Tyson Fury to determine the undisputed world champion if Anthony Joshua will step aside.

AJ has already triggered his rematch clause to get his shot at regaining the IBF, WBA and WBO titles that he lost to the Ukrainian star.

Oleksandr Usyk wants to unify the heavyweight division if Anthony Joshua will step aside
Tyson Fury is without an opponent for for February or March

Neither a date or location has been determined for that targeted 2022 bout.

Meanwhile, after the WBC failed to determine Dillian Whyte as his mandatory challenger, Fury has no opponent to make the February or March ring return he wants.

Fury and Usyk have fought 51 times between them without defeat and currently own every belt in the heavyweight division.

Now Usyk’s promoter Alexander Krassyuk has told Sky Sports his fighter is ready to face the Gypsy King – depending on AJ.

He said: “The talks on AJ’s step aside have been around since Fury KO’d Wilder.

“I heard that Joshua could consider stepping aside if the money is right as he feels respect to the division and is willing to let the undisputed heavyweight championship happen.

“Usyk says that he can fight Fury next if the offer is right and if AJ allows to do so.”

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn did not make any response to Krassyuk’s remarks.

But he has previously revealed that his man’s plans for the Usyk rematch were being put in place.

He said: “AJ is already in camp physically and mentally for the Usyk rematch, and it’s all he has thought about since the night of the first fight.”
